Best way to build an online booking platform

Hi everybody!

A little history about me first...

I used to be a web designer and then I moved industries after many successful years of building small websites for local businesses.

I have decided to get back into the web design game and I'm currently refreshing all of my html, css & php knowledge using Treehouse.

I have a business idea I'd like to launch and it will require me to build and manage a booking system for clients. The booking system needs to sell memberships and allow customers to book onto fitness classes. There are systems like this on the market I know but I'd really like to build it from the ground up if possible.

My coding experience is basic, as I previously mentioned I'm refreshing html, css & php and whilst I'm fairly confident with these languages it would be great to hear from you guys which other languages I should start to master to achieve my goals.

Thanks for your time, and I look forward to hearing from you guys.

Kind regards,

Hi Ashley,

JavaScript is an obvious one to add to your list to make your platform interactive. And you're going to need a database language - like MySQL.

Does that help?
